Katherine Fulton with Richard Rockefeller and Larry Brilliant: The Deeper News About the New Philanthropy
10,000 families in the US, Katherine Fulton reported, have assets of $100 million or more. That's up from 7,000 just a couple years ago. Most of that money is "on the sidelines." The poor and the middle class are far more generous in their philanthropy, proportionally, than the very wealthy.
Philanthropy across the board is in the midst of intense, potentially revolutionary, transition, she said. There's new money, new leaders, new rules, new technology, and new needs. Where great wealth used to come mainly from inheritance and oil, now it comes from success in high technology and finance and ideas and expectations from those business experiences inform (and sometimes over-simplify) the new philanthropy.
Katherine is joined on stage for questions with Richard Rockefeller, a 4th generation philanthropist, and Larry Brilliant, the newly named director of the Google Foundation.
